People at our rally spoke about the imprisonment of women and children in Turkey. We spoke up for women’s safety and hope in Turkey and throughout the world.
In the aftermath of the failed coup attempt in 2016, the Turkish government arrested, detained, sacked, and tortured hundreds of thousands of innocent people. The government’s heavy-handed persecution has reached the lives of thousands of women, along with their infants and children in many cases.
